Infection URL:Mal, pops up every time i open Chrome.
« on: July 30, 2014, 12:45:53 PM »
Hi there, i get this notification Infection URL: MAL from Avast every time when i open Chrome and it blocked different unknown url though i never go to that page,so i thought my computer would be infected by Malware , then i follow the instructions as shown here https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=53253.0
and here, i attach the results of Malware bites Anti Malware and FRST as well after scanning, see if anyone could help me on this?
Thanks in advance! ;D

you may have to turn off your AV before you download and scan with it

do you have Malwarebytes log?

I would recommend that you fully uninstall Chrome and get the latest copy.  Your version is running from the programme data folder and should be running from program files

CAUTION :  This fix is only valid for this specific machine, using it on another may break your computer

Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:

REBOOT:

 
Save this as fixlist.txt, in the same location as FRST.exe
Run FRST and press Fix
On completion a log will be generated please post that

THEN

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Scan.
  • After the scan is complete click on "Clean"
  • Confirm each time with Ok.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

Yes please as running from program data is not a good idea.  Once done could you let me know if the alerts continue

In that case methinks I will send you on your merry way :)

Subject to no further problems   :)

I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems 

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean  :thumbsup:

A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset  System Restore points:

Download and run Delfix




: Keep Java Updated :

WARNING: Java is the #1 exploited program at this time. The Department of Homeland Security recommends that computer users disable Java
See this article

I would recommend that you completely uninstall Java unless you need it to run an important software.
In that instance I would recommend that you disable Java in your browsers until you need it for that software and then enable it. (See How to diasble Java in your web browser and How to unplug Java from the browser)

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:

CryptoPrevent install this programme to lock down and prevent crypto ransome ware



Malwarebytes.

Update and run weekly to keep your system clean


It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this little guide  Best security practices Keep safe  :wave:

I've a few questions to ask bro,
1. what's log, and why is it needed to be clean?
2. the cleanup procedures including reset system restore points, after the reset, what will happen?
3. crypto ransome ware and malware arent same??
sorry for the simple questions as im just a newbie to computer, thanks!  ;D

This means that I can longer see any malware in your reports

Quote
2. the cleanup procedures including reset system restore points, after the reset, what will happen?
This ensures that none of your restore points will include the malware

Quote
3. crypto ransome ware and malware arent same??
With the cryptoransom the files on your computer are encrypted and you need to pay the crooks to get them decrypted as there is no other way to do this

Always ask if you have any questions I do not mind :)
